Strawberry Cake(Eggless)

38BB0EA6-8016-4AA6-934A-D04F56D92BCDStrawberry cake

Recently my son turned eleven years. We celebrated this joyful moment with strawberry cake. The cake was very moist and fluffy too. All the kids thoroughly enjoyed it till the last crumb. I’ve used maida, condensed milk, medium fat cream and strawberries as main ingredients. Baking powder, baking soda, strawberry flavour and a pinch of salt are added. I’ve not used any vegetable oil or butter for a change. Wet ingredients are mixed thoroughly with wired whisk. Sifted dry ingredients are mixed with wet ingredients. The prepared cake batter is poured into a loaf pan which contains greased parchment paper. Bake the cake batter in a preheated oven @ 180 degrees for 30 minutes.  Allow the baked cake to completely cool down. Frosting is done with strawberry frosting. Here I present scrumptious strawberry cake to relish during birthday parties.  Njoy Cooking, Serving n Savoring!
